RICHMOND, VIRGINIA: Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer’s Capital Markets Group has represented the seller in the sale of the Turning Basin, located at 111 Virginia Street in the Central Business District of Richmond, Virginia. 
Located in Richmond’s vibrant Shockoe Slip Historic District at the intersections of Virginia Street, Canal Street and South 14th Street, the 92,814 square foot class A office building includes a five-story office building and an adaptive reuse of the historic Norfolk and Southern Railway building into a 12,436 square foot restaurant and bar arcade. Situated on the renovated Canal Walk at the site of the historic turning basin, the property enjoys views of the James River in a highly-walkable, urban infill setting.
Jewell Capital, out of Miami, Florida, acquired the asset, 97% leased at time of sale, on September 17, 2018 for an undisclosed price. 
“Turning Basin benefits from a unique position in the downtown Richmond office market.  With modern tenant build-outs and an unmatched location in the CBD the opportunity garnered a tremendous amount of interest from Buyers nationwide.  We expect Jewell Capital will continue the positive momentum created by the leasing team over the last few years,” noted Eric Robison, Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer.
